Our History

Our Church building:

Our Church is a grade I Listed building, with origins dating back to the 11th Century. A 12th century coffin lid, now inside the church, was found when the foundations for the tower were prepared in the 19th Century. In the early days the Church was a simple structure comprising a nave and a chancel with a west bellcote and a wooden south porch. The Church went through some changes in the 14th Century and 17th Centuries. A period of significant change and additions then took place in the 1820s - 1840s. Our church today comprises a nave, a chancel, north and south transepts, north-west tower and north porch. Our Church is well known for the Joseph Paxton window and the Inglis Chapel. We are truly blessed by the history and Faith of those that have gone before us in our church and our church building carries a very special sense of history throughout the building. 

Our church is visited by many over the years and worth a visit. 

Please contact us if you would like to arrange a visit outside of our regular hours.

Our Vision for our Building:

We have recently set up a new Fabric Fund (November 2017) to help us work towards the following:

Repair the leaking Tower Roof

Repair the Church Clock

Install a new heating system

Re-order the inside of our Tower

Install toilet facilities

Carry out restorative and maintenance works to various parts of the church.

Various fundraising events will take place to launch and maintain this funding. The Fabric Fund also brings clarity and assurance for those wishing to specifically support the fabric of the building, either by regular, one off gifts and also by legacy. Want to know more about our Fabric Fund, please contact us. A founding Fabric Fund letter and document is available upon request and if you wish to know more , please contact our churchwarden, Kelvin White.
